Hello, my brake pads are finally worn out and now I fear they are starting to damage my rotors. So here's the deal find me a better deal then this:
and you'll win a special prize :).
My car is a 1996 Chevy Corsica, I don't think you guys need more info then that but if so I'll see what I can do.

you're not gonna find a better price than that
just want to point out that you get what you put into it, napa has expensive brakes but they are life time warranty.

autozone is cheaper and also has lifetime warranty

I don't think he's gonna need lifetime warranty on a '96 unless he keeps it in absolutely top condition.

Yeah no need for expensive brakes, hopefully I'll upgrade my car soon :).

When I went in for new tires this morning the guy told me I needed a new rotor also on the front right. Which really I knew all along it's been metal on metal for a few days now. And then he hit me with the price $290.. -.-. Out of my price range by just a little bit, loll. So after I got my new tires put on, I drove over to the local Carquest bought 2 new pads, 1 new rotor, brake lubricant stuff, and good old dot 3 brake fluid, all for the grand price of $51. Now later today I'm going to have my bro who said "brake pads are a super easy job" put them on. Hopefully everything goes well. :)
I chose Novice as the winner, in chatmail he gave me the best advice. And most similar to what I am actually doing :).

"Now later today I'm going to have my bro who said "brake pads are a super easy job" put them on."
I put my first set on by myself last spring. Never had any experience, but I was able to do it. If you know how to change a tire and work a ratchet you're fine.

hope you got the "no squeal" grease... it really does help, just put a fine layer on the BACKSIDE of the pads, where they touch the caliper.

I'm pretty sure putting it on the front of the pads means you have "no brakes" grease.

Yeah brakes are pretty easy to do. Make sure you use the correct torque settings for any bolts though.
